3:30pm — 3:30pm
Delve deeper into our Not Just Bollywood film season with this special one-hour introduction from Dr Saba Hussain from the University of Warick. The session will explore the growing power of the female audience at the Indian box office and the re-gendering of narrative storytelling on screen. This illustrated talk will spotlight some of the best examples of this new film practice, celebrating and examining the rise of the New Woman and what this potentially means for the Indian film industry and South Asian cinema more widely. Afterwards, at 17:00 why not check out Rohena Gera’s debut film Sir.
